Ubuntu 5.04 / 5.10 : texinfo regression bug fix (USN-194-2)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

USN-194-1 fixed a vulnerability in the 'texindex' program.
Unfortunately this update introduced a regression that caused the
program to abort when cleaning up temporary files (which are used with
extraordinarily large input files). The updated packages fix this.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected info and / or texinfo packages.

Risk factor :
